I have entered into institution by myself, so, can I submit documents on the grant, if time for passing document has been ended?

The competition includes only those applicants who applied beforehand under the terms of the program. Therefore, even if you were enrolled in an educational institution by yourself, and are looking for funding now, we cannot consider your application. Documents for participation in the competition are passed in advance, in some cases, prior to the school's admissions office. We adhere to this rule because we believe that a purposeful person thinks over his future and looking for opportunities in advance for the implementation of their goals. Therefore, the competitive selection process in our Foundation runs parallel with the process of admission to the educational institution. Moreover, the Fund is not responsible for the enrollment of a candidate on the grant of an educational institution. If the winner of our program is not admitted in the educational institution, he is automatically excluded from the program.

The Fund is responsible only for the selection of fellows, which in case of victory in the competition can guarantee the payment of costs related to education.

You have the right to submit an incomplete set of documents and your application will be considered. But in this case, you lose your points, thereby reducing chance of success. Also, the fact that a full set of documents will be taken into consideration in the selection process and this will strongly influence the final decisions at each stage of the selection process.

My family and I actually live in another city, not at the place of residence registration. Therefore, cannot get the family members and real estate availability certificates. How can we be?

In any case, all the documents are obligatory for submission to the Fund. In the selection process the Fund looks at and considers only the official documents, as we do not have the resources to study the situation of each of the contenders.
